I liked this movie. It showed all the temptations teens are faced with but the young man didn't give in to any of them. He showed good character and had a great relationship with his parents, though he didn't always agree with them. I thought the acting was believable and good.
There are temptations in real life and I think the pastor's son was a good example of how to be a Christian. However I do not agree with kissing on the lips before getting married it can cause impure thoughts and even though much of the world thinks it's ok, I think a pastor's son should set a better example. I can only give it four stars for this reason.
Overall, the movie deals with important subjects that some teens have to deal with: suicide of a peer, moving during your later years of high school, submission to authority, whether or not a professing believer in Christ should date an unbeliever, and the usual temptations to sin such as underage drinking (getting drunk is implied) and pre-martial sex.
Showing a pastor's kid dating an unbeliever without the father giving one word of warning about the relationship shows how weak the father's role as his son's pastor really is. The other big issue is that there is are at least two scenes showing a condom package. As another reviewer stated, the teen doesn't use it as intended but it is shown. I don't think that was necessary to convey that the main character was invited to have sex with Jasmine but refused to have pre-martial sex. I had to skip these parts of the movie since there were younger members of my family who I did not want exposed to theses themes just yet. The movie could have dealt with this subject in a more descrete manner that would have been suitable for the whole family. I would not watch this movie with anyone in my family who is under 16,
Parents need to be prepared to talk with their children who do watch this about the BIblical view of pre-martial sex (they should anyway) and why condoms don't make sex safe for anyone.
